history

Bootaagani-minis ∞ Drummond Island Land Reclamation Project was established in 2017 by Dylan Miner. Bootaagani-minis ∞ DILRP revitalizes Métis presence on the island – particularly for descendants of the Drummond Island voyageurs, who were forced from the island when the US-Canada border was drawn.

Miner is a descendant of the L'Hirondelle, Brissette, and Miner families. He hopes to revitalize Métis traditional use of the island for gathering and Indigenous knowledge sharing.
